Product Manager: Identify opportunities in the market by understanding product mix, lender versus peers

Key Insight Gained: Lender has been missing out on the 121-180-month term market with their volume decreasing 21% year over year, yet the market has increased 14%.

The lender has outperformed in the 181–240-month space

  • Is the lender successfully diversifying products according to their strategic plan, causing this variance?
  • Is there more opportunity in other terms they should be taking advantage of?

The Product Manager can drill down further to determine the drivers of the difference in mix and where opportunities exist (loan amount, collateral, state and so on). 

Pricing Manager: Is my pricing aligned with that of my peers?
Where do I have opportunity for margin improvement and market share gain?

Key Insight Gained: The lender’s rate is closely aligned with peers in all product specs except RE Secured where rates are ~1% below that of peers.

Is there an opportunity to increase rates to match the market? After initial review, the lender decides to make a move and increase price. Upon post-change review, the lender sees that the rate gap to competition has closed, and the market share (black line) has increased.
